EPA Ag Advisor to Provide Biofuel Update at ACE Conference

Sioux Falls, SD – The American Coalition for Ethanol (ACE) welcomes Rod Snyder, Senior Advisor for Agriculture at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, as a keynote speaker during its 35th annual conference taking place August 10-12 at the Omaha Marriott Downtown at the Capitol District.

EPA Administrator Michael Regan announced the appointment of Rod Snyder as EPA’s Agriculture Advisor in October 2021. Snyder leads outreach and engagement efforts with the agricultural community for EPA, working to advance the Biden-Harris environmental agenda for farmers, biofuel producers and rural communities. Prior to this role, Snyder served as president of Field to Market: The Alliance for Sustainable Agriculture, which is the largest multi-stakeholder initiative working to advance the sustainability of commodity crop farming in the U.S.

“Given the incredibly long list of ethanol industry priorities on EPA’s to-do list, we are honored Rod Snyder will be joining us to address conference attendees on August 12,” said Brian Jennings, ACE CEO. “We look forward to his updates on EPA’s work to ensure uninterrupted year-round access for E15, the future of the Renewable Fuel Standard, adopting the GREET model to determine the lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions of biofuels, steps the Agency can take to clear regulatory roadblocks to higher blends of ethanol, and the role farmers and ethanol producers play in helping combat climate change.”

Snyder’s keynote will take place during the August 12 morning general session. More event and agenda details are available at ethanol.org/events/conference. Please contact Katie Muckenhirn at [email protected] with questions.
